Well, I got off to a late start and worked on two paintings tonight, but I'm glad I did. Went with a metal bowl so it would reflect and complicate my life as well as five apples. I also tried paint more loose - it could have ended in disaster, but I like the way it turned out. Again sorry for the glare - my nice camera takes film and a week to develop! Maybe it's time to upgrade? This point and shoot digital camera of mine isn't cutting the mustard.
